WAVE GOODBYE TO YOUR VISITORS is a four track 4-tracked collection of songs from the elusive & liminal Group Stretching. Originally released in the late summer of 2016, now featuring bonus track "Rant Brittle".

GROUP STRETCHING stems from the mind of Matt Anderegg (acting member of Mothers, New Wives) and yes, a live band did exist under this name briefly in the summer/fall of 2015 but was later reigned back into a solo recording venture sometime late last year. These four (or five) songs comprise the total recorded output of Group Stretching thusfar - insular, inventive & impressionistic pieces that are the result of a lifetime of private practice.

Anderegg emerges a fully competent songwriter and compelling figure in his own right, a luminous young mind cracked wide open for those brave enough to look.

From Flagpole Magazine:

""Although he's been across the globe this year with Athens band Mothers, musician Matthew Anderegg managed to squeeze out a new EP of songs under his Group Stretching moniker earlier this month. The four-song release is titled WAVE GOODBYE TO YOUR VISITORS. We previously heard from Group Stretching back in January via the single-song release “Rant Brittle.” Where that song made serious inroads into both earthy and atmospheric melodicism, including a patently 1960s-era swell just before the one-minute mark, this new EP barely makes such concessions. It's not atonal, but it is asymmetrical, and the only track coming close to easy listening is the opener “Fork.” That immediately transitions into the Jandek-ian sparseness of “Broken Measures,” which segues into the signal-bent mash of “Base Solo” before winding up with an Ameri-indie take on Kraftwerk, “Our Dated Reference.” Wave Goodbye functions less as a standard record and more like an AURAL FLIPBOOK . . . ""
